The Lord said to him, "I will be with you."

Judges 6:16 The LORD said to him, “I will be with you. And you will destroy the Midianites as if you were fighting against one man.”

Never underestimate what you can do when the Lord is in control of your heart. The Lord can move any mountain that may stand in your way. He can silence your loudest skeptics. He can disarm your strongest foes. When the Lord is with you, there is nothing you cannot do and there is no one who can stop you.

Our problem is that we are more prone to look at the size of the task than we are the size of our God. We forget just how great our God is. We stop focusing on Him and become victims of our world.

The next time you begin to doubt what you can do through Christ, take a walk and observe what he has created by the mere utterance of His word. Not only did He speak it into existence, but He holds it altogether and will continue to do us for as long as He desires to do so. This same Christ, who created what you see, lives within you. He is the same as He always has been and always will be. He who created you and the world you live in is able to create a way for you to stand up and fight your worst and strongest enemy. He is able to remove every obstacle in your way and help you overcome whatever you are up against. Spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, He is able to go with you and destroy all your enemies. He is able to break the power they may have over you. He is able to help you rise above them all live in peace.

Let the words of our Lord penetrate deep into your soul today, “I will be with you.” It is enough. The victory is ours.

If you are in a position where you aren’t as committed to Him as you once were, it is not too late to do something about it.  The Lord longs for a restored fellowship with you.  He wants to be far more to you than “fire insurance.”  He wants to be your Lord.  He wants all of your heart, mind and soul.   He wants to be your first and foremost love.  Will you let Him?  Bow your heart before Him right now and let Him reclaim your soul.  You will be glad you did.
